Curious details about the cloud web page hosting service

In general, the authentic cloud webspace hosting solution serves different hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of top-notch web servers. Each individual service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The immense cloud web page hosting scam. Very common nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web space hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the site hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers

If a cPanel-based web site hosting retailer has a cloud site hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, in that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, lots of money must be invested too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud webspace hosting platforms. There are no open source CP instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous webspace hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on one single web server exclusively. All site hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these respective one-server web space hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web site hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper examples of custom constructed cloud hosting platforms with custom developed web page hosting Control Panels are: Grab Bag Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
